Notice of Copyright For This Document:

This document is published under modified FDL. The change of the license is to prevent from situations that the author has to buy his own book. The Potto Project License doesn’t long apply to this document and associated docoments.

GNU Free Documentation License
The modification is that under section 3 “copying in quantity” should be add in the end. ”If you print more than 200 copies, you are required to furnish the author with two (2) copies of the printed book.” Version 1.2, November 2002 Copyright ©2000,2001,2002 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document ”free” in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and




publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others. This License is a kind of ”copyleft”, which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense. It complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software. We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free software, because free software needs free documentation: a free program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this License is not limited to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or whether it is published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.

This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be distributed under the terms of this License. Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein. The ”Document”, below, refers to any such manual or work. Any member of the public is a licensee, and is addressed as ”you”. You accept the license if you copy, modify or distribute the work in a way requiring permission under copyright law. A ”Modified Version” of the Document means any work containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with modifications and/or translated into another language. A ”Secondary Section” is a named appendix or a front-matter section of the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the publishers or authors of the Document to the Document’s overall subject (or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject. (Thus, if the Document is in part a textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any mathematics.) The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal, commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding them. The ”Invariant Sections” are certain Secondary Sections whose titles are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. If a section does not fit the above definition of Secondary then it is not allowed to be designated as Invariant. The Document may contain zero Invariant Sections. If the Document does not identify any Invariant Sections then there are none. The ”Cover Texts” are certain short passages of text that are listed, as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. A Front-Cover Text may be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text may be at most 25 words. A ”Transparent” copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy, represented in a format whose specification is available to the general public, that is suitable for revising the document straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for



images composed of pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text formatters. A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart or discourage subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent. An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount of text. A copy that is not ”Transparent” is called ”Opaque”. Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple HTML, PostScript or PDF designed for human modification. Examples of transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG. Opaque formats include proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or processing tools are not generally available, and the machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some word processors for output purposes only. The ”Title Page” means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material this License requires to appear in the title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, ”Title Page” means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work’s title, preceding the beginning of the body of the text. A section ”Entitled XYZ” means a named subunit of the Document whose title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses following text that translates XYZ in another language. (Here XYZ stands for a specific section name mentioned below, such as ”Acknowledgements”, ”Dedications”, ”Endorsements”, or ”History”.) To ”Preserve the Title” of such a section when you modify the Document means that it remains a section ”Entitled XYZ” according to this definition. The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which states that this License applies to the Document. These Warranty Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties: any other implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has no effect on the meaning of this License.

You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this License. You may not use technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further copying of the copies you make or distribute. However, you may accept compensation in exchange for copies. If you distribute a large enough number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3. You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and you may publicly display copies.




If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the Document’s license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on the back cover. Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify you as the publisher of these copies. The front cover must present the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and visible. You may add other material on the covers in addition. Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated as verbatim copying in other respects. If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent pages. If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy a computer-network location from which the general network-using public has access to download using public-standard network protocols a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material. If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps, when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that edition to the public. It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.

You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified Version filling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy of it. In addition, you must do these things in the Modified Version: A. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section of the Document).

Currently. application of supply and demand to rapid change power system and etc. he spends time writing books (there are already three very popular books) and softwares for the POTTO project (see Potto Prologue). In his early part of his professional life.D. Bar-Meir was mainly interested in elegant models whether they have or not a practical applicability. the author’s models were used in numerical works. it was commonly believed and taught that there is only weak and strong shock and it is continue by Prandtl–Meyer function. Dr.E. All the models have practical applicability. this author’s views had changed and the virtue of the practical part of any model becomes the essential part of his ideas. in GM. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Minnesota and a Master in Fluid Mechanics from Tel Aviv University. R. These models are based on analytical solution to a family of equations1 . For example. xxxvii . and Canada. These models have been extended by several research groups (needless to say with large research grants). The author enjoys to encourage his students to understand the material beyond the basic requirements of exams.G. the Spanish Comision Interministerial provides grants TAP97-0489 and PB98-0007. Eckert. books and software. Much of his time has been spend doing research in the field of heat and mass transfer (related to renewal energy issues) and this includes fluid mechanics related to manufacturing processes and design. Moreover. Bar-Meir developed models that explained several manufacturing processes such the rapid evacuation of gas from containers. Now. In the area of compressible flow. Bar-Meir was the last student of the late Dr. He developed models for Mass Transfer in high concentration that became a building blocks for many other models. the critical piston velocity in a partially filled chamber (related to hydraulic jump). Spain.About This Author Genick Bar-Meir holds a Ph. British industry. Bar– 1 Where the mathematicians were able only to prove that the solution exists.

He described and categorized the filling and evacuating of chamber by compressible fluid in which he also found analytical solutions to cases where the working fluid was ideal gas. While he is known to look like he knows about many things. The author spent years working on the sea (ships) as a engine sea officer but now the author prefers to remain on solid ground. While he writes his programs and does other computer chores. All the previous models for the flooding phenomenon did not have a physical explanation to the dryness. The author lives with his wife and three children. Bar-Meir demonstrated that common Prandtl–Meyer explanation violates the conservation of mass and therefor the turn must be around a finite radius. the author just know to learn quickly.xxxviii LIST OF TABLES Meir discovered the analytical solution for oblique shock and showed that there is a quiet buffer between the oblique shock and Prandtl–Meyer. he often feels clueless about computers and programing. Bar-Meir demonstrated that fluids must have wavy surface when the materials flow together. A past project of his was building a four stories house. He built a model to explain the flooding problem (two phase flow) based on the physics. . In his book “Basics of Fluid Mechanics”. practically from scratch. The author’s explanations on missing diameter and other issues in fanno flow and ““naughty professor’s question”” are used in the industry. He also constructed and explained many new categories for two flow regimes. Engineers have constructed design that based on this conclusion. The common explanation to Prandtl–Meyer function shows that flow can turn in a sharp corner. He also build analytical solution to several moving shock cases.

It is apparent that writing textbooks especially for college students as a cooperation. Writing a book in the technical field is not the same as writing a novel.harvard. This project is to increase wisdom and humility. the corrupted court system defends the “big” guys and on the other hand. The second issue that prompted the writing of this book is the fact that we as the public have to deal with a corrupted judicial system. The Potto Project has far greater goals than simply correcting an abusive Judicial system or simply exposing abusive judges. There is always someone who can add to the book.Prologue For The POTTO Project This books series was born out of frustrations in two respects. particularly the copyright law with the “infinite2 ” time with the copyright holders. As R. one should increase wisdom. Ashcroff (see http://cyber. The first issue is the enormous price of college textbooks. xxxix .edu/openlaw/eldredvashcroft for more information) copyrights practically remain indefinitely with the holder (not the creator). On one hand. As individuals we have to obey the law. It has become very clear to the author and founder of the POTTO Project that this situation must be stopped. The study of technical material isn’t only done by having to memorize the material. The wikipedia is an excellent collection of articles which are written by various individuals. the creation of the POTTO Project. when applied to “small” individuals who are not able to hire a large legal firm. 3 In some sense one can view the encyclopedia Wikipedia as an open content project (see http://en. punishes the small “entrepreneur” who tries to defend his or her work. said instead of whining about arrogance and incorrectness. Hence. Page). The writing of a technical book is really a collection of information and practice.wikipedia. is a new idea3 . It is unacceptable that the price of the college books will be over $150 per book (over 10 hours of work for an average student in The United States). judges simply manufacture facts to make the little guy lose and pay for the defense of his but also by coming to understand and be able to solve 2 After the last decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Eldred v. like an open source. one of this author’s sages. However.

the reason is the pure fun of writing and organizing educational material. they will become the most popular books and the most read books in their respected field. the collective power of their networking creates an extremely powerful intelligence to carry out this attack4 . While a single ant is not intelligent enough to attack and hunt large prey. If a contributor of a section in such a book can be easily identified.” American Scientist. this method is expected to accelerate the creation of these high quality books. These books are written in a similar manner to the open source software 4 see also in Franks. so can we in creating textbooks by this powerful tool.xl LIST OF TABLES related problems. The book’s contributor’s names could be written by their sections. The author has not found any technique that is more useful for this purpose than practicing the solving of problems and exercises.html) . One can be successful when one solves as many problems as possible. In a way. one also begins to better understand the material. in the course of their teaching they have found that the textbook they were using contains sections that can be improved or that are not as good as their own notes. the popularity of the books should be one of the incentives for potential contributors. For some authors.ex. then that contributor will be the copyright holder of that specific section (even within question/answer sections).ac. In these cases. Experience has shown that in explaining to others any given subject. hunting animals that are even up to a hundred kilograms in weight. the writing of or contributing to this kind of books will serve as a social function. Nigel R. When an insect which is blind can be so powerful by networking. While one can be as creative as possible. The social function can have at least two components. The secret of the ants’ power lies in their collective intelligence. the undersigned believes that personal intentions are appropriate and are the author’s/organizer’s private affair. It is not just for experts to contribute. Why would someone volunteer to be an author or organizer of such a book? This is the first question the undersigned was asked. but also students who happened to be doing their homework. there are always others who can see new aspects of or add to the material. One component is to come to know and socialize with many in the profession. For others. For some contributors/authors. The answer varies from individual to individual. For example. It is hoped that because of the open nature of these books. ”Army Ants: A Collective Intelligence. Thus. contributing to these books will help one to understand the material better. The desire to be an author of a well–known book (at least in his/her profession) will convince some to put forth the effort. they now have an opportunity to put their notes to use for others. To reach this possibility the collective book idea was created/adapted. The following example explains this point: The army ant is a kind of carnivorous ant that lives and hunts in the tropics. For others the social part is as simple as a desire to reduce the price of college textbooks. Thus. Whatever the reasons. especially for family members or relatives and those students lacking 1989 (see for information http://www. the books on compressible flow and die casting became the most popular books in their respective area. The student’s contributions can be done by adding a question and perhaps the solution. 77:139. The collective material is much richer than any single person can create by himself..

Every month people from about 110 different countries download these books. Someone has to write the skeleton and hopefully others will add “flesh and skin. chapters or sections can be added after the skeleton has been written. It is also hoped that others will contribute to the question and answer sections in the book. the traditional role of author will be replaced by an organizer who will be the one to compile the book. etc. It is hoped that the books will be error-free. These books are intended to be “continuous” in the sense that there will be someone who will maintain and improve the books with time (the organizer(s)).CREDITS xli process. In the last 5 years three textbooks have been constructed which are available for download. The book on compressible flow is also used by “young engineers and scientists” in NASA according to Dr. This may merely be the person who decides what will go into the book and what will not (gate keeper). Potto books on compressible flow and fluid mechanics are used as the main textbook or as a reference book in several universities around the world. In addition. the contributions to books can be done by many who are not experts. Unlike a regular book.000 copies a month.

The common explanation to the wave existence was that there is always a disturbance which causes instability. chemical engineering. it is very satisfying for the author.6M When this author was an undergraduate student. This author was bothered by this explanation. 2008 pages 151 size 1. it was proven that this wavy interface is created due to the need to satisfy the continuous velocity and shear stress at the interface and not a disturbance. he spend time to study the wave phenomenon at the interface of open channel flow. it is also related to disciplines like industrial engineering. aerospace engineering.

and their colleagues. As a wise person says “don’t tell me that it is wrong. the previous book. Eckert. some minimal familiarity can be helpful for many engineers who have to deal with non pure single phase fluid. An introduction to multi–phase flow. When the Static Chapter was written. His book met strong criticism in which some called to “burn” his book. there is no known place in world that does not teach according to Eckert’s doctrine. met its opposition. ideal flow will be presented with the issues of added mass and added forces (under construction). dimensional analysis will be present (again under construction).R. there was a realization that it is the best chapter written on this topic. The third book chapter is a review of mechanics.xlvi LIST OF TABLES previous geniuses who work in this field. Clearly. not a traditional topic. must be taught in engineering classes.

POTTO project books are open content textbooks so everyone are welcome to joint in. multiphase is an advance topic. Indeed. The classic issue of turbulence (and stability) will be presented. At this stage. it must be emphasized that this book is not expected to revolutionize the field but change some of the way things are taught. For example. During the writing it became apparent that it should be a book in its own right. The next topic is statics. As traditional texts in this field.G. as a traditional textbook. anonymous Wikipedia user name EMBaero claimed that the material in the book is plagiarizing. It is hoped that the other chapters will be as good this one. The second chapter deals with Thermodynamics. The next two chapters will deals with open channel flow and gas dynamics.

This book is the third book in the series of POTTO project books. wrote the book that brought a revolution in the education of the heat transfer. He wrote his book because he realized that the dimensional analysis utilized by him and his adviser (for the post doc). Today. this author did not realize that so many new ideas will be inserted into this topic. These criticisms will not change the future or the success of the ideas in this work. deals with a basic introduction to the fluid properties and concepts (under construction). The book is organized into several chapters which. Maybe that was the reason that he felt that is okay to plagiarize the book on Wikipedia. The topic of fluid mechanics was chosen just to fill the introduction chapter to compressible flow. this is the only reply. the study of heat transfer was without any dimensional analysis. Ernst Schmidt. Up to Egret’s book. However. One of the difference in this book is the insertion of the introduction to multiphase flow. will be presented next (again under construction). It is assumed that the same kind of individual(s) who criticized Eckert’s work will criticize this work. however.

There are numerous books on fluid mechanics but none of which is open content. xlvii .” Later. and hope to find a way to use gaspell.How This Book Was Written This book started because I needed an introduction to the compressible flow book. The approach adapted in this book is practical. multi–phase flow chapter was written. In writing this book. The chapters are not written in order. This book was written using the vim editor for editing (sorry never was able to be comfortable with emacs). The structure of Hansen. This author was influenced by Streeter and Wylie book which was his undergrad textbooks. Of course. The spell checking was done by ispell. the best graphic program that this author experienced so far. this book avoids this kind of issues. After a while it seems that is easier to write a whole book than the two original planned chapters. Streeter and Wylie. The first 4 chapters were written first because they were supposed to be modified and used as fluid mechanics introduction in “Fundamentals of Compressible Flow. and Shames books were adapted and used as a scaffolding for this book. The presentation of some of the chapters is slightly different from other books because the usability of the computers. and is copyleft by him. The figure in cover page was created by Genick Bar-Meir. So. The book does not provide the old style graphical solution methods yet provides the graphical explanation of things. Otherwise. issue of proofs so and so are here only either to explain a point or have a solution of exams. The graphics were done by TGIF. and more hands–on approach. this book was written on Linux (Micro$oftLess book). The figures were done by gle. it was assumed that introductory book on fluid mechanics should not contained many new ideas but should be modern in the material presentation. This statement really meant that the book is intent to be used by students to solve their exams and also used by practitioners when they search for solutions for practical problems. a program that currently cannot be used on new Linux systems.

Furthermore.1 What is Fluid Mechanics? Fluid mechanics deals with the study of all fluids under static and dynamic situations. but a closer look reveals that the glass is a liquid with a large viscosity.). The fluid mechanics study involve many fields that have no clear boundary between them. flow in enclose bodies. The bottom part of the glass is thicker than the top part. and statical conditions in continuous material. A proof of the glass “liquidity” is the change of the glass thickness in high windows in European Churches after hundred years. Researchers distinguish between orderly flow and chaotic flow as the laminar flow and the turbulent flow. It is known that these materials have the ability to drown people. fluid statics. In fact. The fluid mechanics can also be distinguish between a single phase flow and multiphase flow (flow made more than one phase or single distinguishable material). the discussion in this book is limited to simple and (mostly) Newtonian (sometimes power fluids) fluids which will be defined later. For example. This study area deals with many and diversified problems such as surface tension. The last boundary (as all the boundaries in fluid mechanics) 1 . glass appears as a solid material. Even material such as aluminum just below the mushy zone also behaves as a liquid similarly to butter. the boundary between the solid mechanics and fluid mechanics is some kind of gray shed and not a sharp distinction (see Figure 1.1 for the complex relationships between the different branches which only part of it should be drawn in the same time.CHAPTER 1 Introduction to Fluid Mechanics 1. almost any action a person is doing involves some kind of a fluid mechanics problem. etc. flow stability.

The first approach introduces the fluid kinematic and then the basic governing equations. the knowledge of fluid mechanics (hydraulic) increasingly gained speed by the contributions of Galileo. “The theory of fluids must necessarily be based upon experiment. with the exception Archimedes (250 B. and D’Alembert.

These two approaches pose a dilemma to anyone who writes an introductory book for the fluid mechanics.C. people realized that wells have to be dug and crude pumping devices need to be constructed. boundary layer and internal and external flow . This discrepancy between theory and practice is called the “D’Alembert paradox” and serves to demonstrate the limitations of theory alone in solving fluid problems. He also made several attempts to study the flight (birds) and developed some concepts on the origin of the forces. larger tunnels built for a larger water supply.) on the principles of buoyancy. chapters on open channel flow (as a sub class of the multiphase flow) and compressible flow (with the latest developments) are provided. There were no calculations even with the great need for water supply and transportation. The first progress in fluid mechanics was made by Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) who built the first chambered canal lock near Milan. There are two main approaches of presenting an introduction of fluid mechanics materials. BRIEF HISTORY 3 complex turbulent flow model. As in thermodynamics. The ideal flow (frictionless flow) should be expanded compared to the regular treatment. Reviewing many books on fluid mechanics made it clear. a large population created a need to solve waste (sewage) and some basic understanding was created. two different of school of thoughts were created: the first be- . turbulence. Before dealing with the boundaries. This fact was acknowledged by D’Alembert who stated that. Such absurd analysis are common among engineers who do not know which model can be applied. At some point. and continue with Empirical Analysis. These aqueducts reached their greatest size and grandeur in those of the City of Rome and China.2 Brief History The need to have some understanding of fluid mechanics started with the need to obtain water supply. Naturally. This book attempts to find a hybrid approach in which the kinematic is presented first (aside to standard initial four chapters) follow by Integral analysis and continued by Differential analysis. For example.” For example the concept of ideal liquid that leads to motion with no resistance. aqueducts were constructed.2. Thus. there isn’t a clear winner. almost all knowledge of the ancients can be summarized as application of instincts. For example. to be followed by stability. 1. At that stage theory and experiments had some discrepancy. the simplified private cases must be explained. Euler. The second approach deals with the Integral Analysis to be followed with Differential Analysis. Torricelli. people realized that water can be used to move things and provide power. one of the main goals of this book is to explain what model should be applied. After his initial work.

At the end of the twenty century. Ganguillet. On the theoretical side. Coulomb. Fabre. Weisbach. However. This concept leads to mathematical basis for many approximations. Perhaps the most radical concept that effects the fluid mechanics is of Prandtl’s idea of boundary layer which is a combination of the modeling and dimensional analysis that leads to modern fluid mechanics. many call Prandtl as the father of modern fluid mechanics. the development of dimensional analysis by Rayleigh. This demand coupled with new several novel concepts like the theoretical and experimental researches of Reynolds. Examples of such work are Hermann von Helmholtz’s concept of vortexes (1858). the demand for vigorous scientific knowledge that can be applied to various liquids as opposed to formula for every fluid was created by the expansion of many industries. d’Aubisson. first Navier in the molecular level and later Stokes from continuous point of view succeeded in creating governing equations for real fluid motion. von Karman. and Poisseuille.

Today many problems can be analyzed by using the numerical tools and provide reasonable results.

no shear stress is applied. Hence. then the change of volume is at best 5%. Later. 1. For example. It is also said that liquid cannot return to their original state after the deformation. assuming turbulent flow for still flow simply provides erroneous results (see for example. which is force per area has a new meaning. sharp even though in reality this difference isn’t sharp. This difference can be. The pressure component in the area . Building a car with this accuracy is a disaster). for most practical purposes considered. the pressure has three components. In this book. one in the area direction and two perpendicular to the area.3. EKK. The gas fills the volume and liquid cannot. and it is referred to the direction of the area. Thus. The second quantity discussed here is the area. it behaves like solid and under others it behaves like liquid (see Figure 1. the change of water pressure by 1000% only change the volume by less than 1 percent. Area of three–dimensional object has no single direction. The first is force which was reviewed in physics. so at this stage the tensor will have to be broken into its components. KINDS OF FLUIDS 5 other cases that numerical analysis cannot provide any meaningful result (trends). For example. The study of this kind of material called rheology and it will (almost) not be discussed in this book. But below the critical point. Gas has no free interface/surface (since it does fill the entire volume). It is evident from this discussion that when a liquid is at rest.3 Kinds of Fluids Some differentiate fluid from solid by the reaction to shear stress. So. a change in the volume by more 5% will required tens of thousands percent change of the pressure. This quantity was discussed in physics class but here it has an additional meaning. the discussion on the mathematical meaning will be presented (later version). The difference between a gas phase to a liquid phase above the critical point are practically minor. under certain limits. In the best scenario.1. This is a result of division of a vector by a vector and it is referred to as tensor. It is a known fact said that the fluid continuously and permanently deformed under shear stress while solid exhibits a finite deformation which does not change with time. For the discussion here. Inc). Thus. The area is measured in [m2 ].g it has a direction. The direction of area is perpendicular to the area. It must be remember that force is a vector. no weather prediction program can produce good engineering quality results (where the snow will fall within 50 kilometers accuracy. these kinds of areas should be addressed infinitesimally and locally. e. This differentiation leads to three groups of materials: solids and liquids. There are several quantities that have to be addressed in this discussion. the pressure will not affect the volume. the emphasis is on the physics. The unit used to measure is [N]. This test creates a new material group that shows dual behaviors. these programs are as good as the input provided. The traditional quantity.1). In gaseous phase. The main difference between the liquids and gases state is that gas will occupy the whole volume while liquids has an almost fix volume. The fluid is mainly divided into two categories: liquids and gases. if the change of pressure is significantly less than that. any change in pressure directly affects the volume.

The density can be changed and it is a function of time and space (location) but must have a continues property. the density remains constant.

Two. The dimensions of this material can be changed. It must be noted that electrical current is a work while heat transfer isn’t. the mass can be assumed constant even though the true conservation law applied to the combination of mass energy (see Einstein’s law). In fact for almost all engineering purpose this law is reduced to two separate laws of mass conservation and energy conservation.1 Basic Definitions The following basic definitions are common to thermodynamics and will be used in this book. there is a transfer of energy so that its effect can cause work.CHAPTER 2 Review of Thermodynamics In this chapter. So. 45 .1) This definition can be expanded to include two issues. 2. it is assumed that the system speed is significantly lower than that of the speed of light.

This introduction is provided to bring the student back to current place with the material. the work was defined as mechanical work = F•d = P dV (2. a review of several definitions of common thermodynamics terms is presented. System This term will be used in this book and it is defined as a continuous (at least partially) fixed quantity of matter. Work In mechanics.

Since all the systems can be calculated in a non accelerating systems. The potential energy of the system is depended on the body force. . m is the mass and the z is the vertical height from a datum. From the first law it directly implies that for process without heat transfer (adiabatic process) the following is true W12 = E1 − E2 (2.3) is that the way the work is done and/or intermediate states are irrelevant to final results. work.2) The system energy is a state property.

The two processes that occurred here are thermal and the change of pressure (at the speed of sound). the slab is in equilibrium with its surroundings before the movement (not necessarily stable). equation (2. The reason that the free expansion is chosen to explain the process that the slab undergoes when it moves from layer h to layer h + dh is because it is the simplest. the free expansion is not far way from the actual process.

Under equilibrium. the body forces that acting on the slab are equal to zero. Thus. the surroundings “pressure” forces (buoyancy forces) are equal to gravity forces. The second issue that occurs during the “expansion” is the shock (in the reverse case [h + dh] → h). That is. a small slab of material moves from a layer at height. This question is determined by the net forces acting on the slab. this shock is insignificant (check book on Fundamentals of Compressible Flow Mechanics by this author on the French problem).2 The Stability Analysis It is interesting to study whether h + dh this solution (4.

To demonstrate this point further, consider a more general case of a polynomial function. The reason that a polynomial function was chosen is that almost all the continuous functions can be represented by a Taylor series, and thus, this example provides for practical purposes of the general solution for curved surfaces. Example 4.16: For the liquid shown in Figure 4.31 ,calculate the moment around point “O” and the force created by the liquid per unit depth.

While the question of the stability was not scientifically examined in the past, the floating vessels structure (more than 150 years ago) show some understanding13 .

The force to hold the cylinder at the place must be made of integration of the pressure around the surface of the square and cylinder bodies. The forces on square geometry body are made only of vertical forces because the two sides cancel each other. However, on the vertical direction, the pressure on the two surfaces are different. On the upper surface the pressure is ρg(h0 − a/2). On the lower surface the pressure is ρg(h0 + a/2). The force due to the liquid pressure per unit depth (into the page) is F = ρg ((h0 − a/2) − (h0 + a/2)) b = −ρ g a b = −ρgV In this case the be (4.144)

F = ρg (4.145) V The force on the immersed body is equal to the weight of the displaced liquid. This analysis can be generalized by noticing two things. All the horizontal forces are canceled. Any body that has a projected area that has two sides, those will cancel each other. Another way to look at this point is by approximation. For any two rectangle bodies, the horizontal forces are canceling each other. Thus even these bodies are in contact with each other, the imaginary pressure make it so that they cancel each other. On the other hand, any shape is made of many small rectangles. The force on every rectangular shape is made of its weight of the volume. Thus, the total force is made of the sum of all the small rectangles which is the weight of the sum of all volume. In illustration of this concept, consider the cylindrical shape in Figure 4.33. The force per area (see Figure 4.34) is

For example. Clearly this topic is very important and will be extensively discussed here.



The energy transfer is carried (mostly3 ) by heat transfer to the system or the control volume. There are three modes of heat transfer, conduction, convection4 and radiation. In most problems, the radiation is minimal. Hence, the discussion here will be restricted to convection and conduction. Issues related to radiation are very complicated and considered advance material and hence will be left out. The issues of convection are mostly covered by the terms on the left hand side. The main heat transfer mode on the left hand side is conduction. Conduction for most simple cases is governed by Fourier’s Law which is dq = kT ˙ dT dA dn (7.3)

Where dq is heat transfer to an infinitesimal small area per time and kT is the heat ˙ conduction coefficient. The heat derivative is normalized into area direction. The total heat transfer to the control volume is ˙ Q=

System at The work done on the system is more complicated to express than the heat transfer. There are two kinds of works that the system does on the surroundings. The first kind work is by the friction or the shear System at t + dt stress and the second by normal force. As in the previous chapter, the surface forces are divided into two categories: one per- Fig. -7.1.

From now on the notation of the control volume and system will be dropped since all equations deals with the control volume. In the last term in equation (7.9) the velocity appears twice. Note that U is the velocity in the frame of reference while Urn is the velocity relative to the boundary. As it was discussed in the previous chapter the normal stress component is replaced by the pressure (see equation (6.8) for more details). The work rate (excluding the shaft work) is

Equation (7.15) describes the energy conservation for the control volume in stationary coordinates. Also note that the shear work inside the the control volume considered as shaft work. The example of flow from a tank or container is presented to demonstrate how to treat some of terms in equation (7.15). Flow Out From A Container In the previous chapters of this book, the flow rate out of a tank or container was assumed to be a linear function of A the height. The flow out is related to the height but in a more complicate function and is the focus of this discussion. The enhℓ Ae ergy equation with mass conservation will Ue be utilized for this analysis. In this analysis several assumptions are made which includes the following: constant density, the gas density is very small compared to Fig. -7.2. Discharge from a Large Container liquid density, and exit area is relatively with a small diameter. small, so the velocity can be assumed uniform (not a function of the opening height)5 , surface tension effects are negligible and

Equation (7.17) provides the relationship between boundary velocity to the exit velocity as A Ub = Ae Ue (7.18)

Note that the boundary velocity is not the averaged velocity but the actual velocity. The averaged velocity in z direction is same as the boundary velocity Ub = Uz = dh Ae = Ue dt A (7.19)

The x component of the averaged velocity is a function of the geometry and was calculated in Example 5.12 to be larger than Ux 2 r Ae 2r 2 r dh Ue =⇒ Ux ∼ Ub = = h A h h dt (7.20)

In this analysis, for simplicity, this quantity will be used. The averaged velocity in the y direction is zero because the flow is symmetrical7 . However, the change of the kinetic energy due to the change in the velocity field isn’t zero. The kinetic energy of the tank or container is based on the half part as shown in Figure 7.3. Similar estimate that was done for x direction can be done to every side of the opening if they are not symmetrical. Since in this case the geometry is assumed to be symmetrical one side is sufficient as (π − 2)r dh Uy ∼ = 8h dt (7.21)

6 This assumption is appropriated only under certain conditions which include the geometry of the tank or container and the liquid properties. A discussion about this issue will be presented in the Dimensional Chapter and is out of the scope of this chapter. Also note that the straight surface assumption is not the same surface tension effects zero. Also notice that the surface velocity is not zero. The surface has three velocity components which non have them vanish. However, in this discussion it is assumed that surface has only one component in z direction. Hence it requires that velocity profile in x y to be parabolic. Second reason for this exercise the surface velocity has only one component is to avoid dealing with Bar-Meir’s instability. 7 For the mass conservation analysis, the velocity is zero for symmetrical geometry and some other geometries. However, for the energy analysis the averaged velocity cannot be considered zero.

202 The energy balance can be expressed by equation (7.15) which is applicable to this case. The temperature is constant8 . In this light, the following approximation can be written Eu ˙ Q= = hin − hout = 0 dt (7.22)

Ue The boundary shear work is zero because the velocity at tank boundary or walls is zero. Furthermore, the shear stresses at Fig. -7.3. How to compensate and estimate the the exit are normal to the flow direction kinetic energy when averaged Velocity is zero. hence the shear work is vanished. At the free surface the velocity has only normal component9 and thus shear work vanishes there as well. Additionally, the internal shear work is assumed negligible.
˙ ˙ Wshear = Wshaf t = 0 (7.23)

Now the energy equation deals with no “external” effects. Note that the (exit) velocity on the upper surface is zero Urn = 0. Combining all these information results in

8 This approach is a common approximation. Yet, why this approach is correct in most cases is not explained here. Clearly, the dissipation creates a loss that has temperature component. In this case, this change is a function of Eckert number, Ec which is very small. The dissipation can be neglected for small Ec number. Ec number is named after this author’s adviser, E.R.G. Eckert. A discussion about this effect will be presented in the dimensional analysis chapter. Some examples how to calculate these losses will be resent later on. 9 It is only the same assumption discussed earlier. 10 It is assumed that the pressure in exit across section is uniform and equal surroundings pressure.

7.1. THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS The governing equation (7.24) is reduced to d dt U2 + g z ρ dV − 2 Ue 2 2 Ue ρ dA = 0





The minus sign is because the flow is out of the control volume. Similarly to the previous chapter which the integral momentum will be replaced by some kind of average. The terms under the time derivative can be divided into two terms as d dt

The kinetic energy related to the averaged velocity with a correction factor which depends on the geometry and the velocity profile. Furthermore, Even the averaged velocity is zero the kinetic energy is not zero and another method should be used. A discussion on the correction factor is presented to provide a better “averaged” velocity. A comparison between the actual kinetic energy and the kinetic energy due to the “averaged” velocity (to be called the averaged kinetic energy) provides a correction coefficient. The first integral can be estimated by examining the velocity profile effects. The averaged velocity is Uave = 1 V U dV


The total kinetic energy for the averaged velocity is ρ Uave 2 V = ρ 1 V

The general correction factor is the ratio of the above value to the actual kinetic energy as

This integral can be evaluated for any given velocity profile. A large family of velocity profiles is laminar or parabolic (for one directional flow)11 . For a pipe geometry, the velocity is U r R = U (¯) = Umax 1 − r2 = 2 Uave 1 − r2 r ¯ ¯ (7.36)

It can be noticed that the velocity is presented as a function of the reduced radius12 . The relationship between Umax to the averaged velocity, Uave is obtained by using equation (7.32) which yields 1/2. Substituting equation (7.36) into equation (7.35) results Uave 2 V U 2 dV


Uave 2 V 2 Uave 1 − r2 ¯

The correction factor for many other velocity profiles and other geometries can be smaller or larger than this value. For circular shape, a good guess number is about 1.1. In this case, for simplicity reason, it is assumed that the averaged velocity indeed represent the energy in the tank or container. Calculations according to this point can improve the accurately based on the above discussion. The difference between the “averaged momentum” velocity and the “averaged kinetic” velocity is also due to the fact that energy is added for different directions while in the momentum case, different directions cancel each other out.
11 Laminar flow is not necessarily implies that the flow velocity profile is parabolic. The flow is parabolic only when the flow is driven by pressure or gravity. More about this issue in the Differential Analysis Chapter. 12 The advantage is described in the Dimensional Analysis Chapter.

The differential analysis allows the investigation of the flow field in greater detail. The equations without the viscosity effects are referred to as the ideal flow equations (Euler Equations) which will be discussed in the next chapter. 227 . This analysis leads to partial differential equations which are referred to as the Navier-Stokes equations. However even for the “regular” solution the mathematics is very complex. the solution is not unique. As usual Simon-Denis Poisson independently. First these equations were derived by Claude– Louis–Marie Navier as it is known in 1827. Like many equations they were independently derived by several people. derived these equations in 1831 for the same arguments as Navier. with a presentation of the “non–regular” solutions will be presented with the associated issues of stability.

These equations are named after Claude–Louis Navier–Marie and George Gabriel Stokes. the emphasis is on infinitesimal scale and thus the analysis provides better accuracy1 . Barr´ de e Saint Venant (1843) and George Gabriel Stokes (1845) derived these equation based on the relationship between stress and rate–of–strain (this approach is presented in this book). A discussion about the “regular” solution is present and a brief discussion about limitations when the solution is applicable.1 Introduction The integral analysis has limited accuracy. One of the approaches is to reduce the equations by eliminating the viscosity effects. Navier-Stokes equations are non–linear and there are more than one possible solution in many cases (if not most cases) e.

DIFFERENTIAL ANALYSIS Similar two equations can be obtained in the other two plans. In situations where the main diagonal terms of the stress tensor are not the same in all directions (in some viscous flows) this property can be served as a measure of the local normal stress.

This expression suggests a new definition of the thermodynamical pressure is Thermodynamic Pressure 2 P = Pm + µ · U (8.100) 3 Summary of The Stress Tensor The above derivations were provided as a long mathematical explanation18 . To reduced one unknown (the shear stress) equation (8.61) the relationship between the stress tensor and the velocity were to be established. First, connection between τxy and the deformation was built. Then the association between normal stress and perpendicular stress was constructed. Using the coordinates transformation, this association was established. The linkage between the stress in the rotated coordinates to the deformation was established. Second Viscosity Coefficient The coefficient 2/3µ is experimental and relates to viscosity. However, if the derivations before were to include additional terms, an additional correction will be needed. This correction results in P = Pm + λ ·U (8.101)

18 Since the publishing the version several people ask this author to summarize conceptually the issues. With God help, it will be provide before version 0.3.1



The value of λ is obtained experimentally. This coefficient is referred in the literature by several terms such as the “expansion viscosity” “second coefficient of viscosity” and “bulk viscosity.” Here the term bulk viscosity will be adapted. The dimension of the bulk viscosity, λ, is similar to the viscosity µ. λ bulk viscosity According to second law of thermodynamic derivations (not shown here and are under construction) demonstrate that λ must be positive. The thermodynamic pressure always tends to follow the mechanical pressure during a change. The expansion rate of change and the fluid molecular structure through λ control the difference. Equation (8.101) can be written in terms of the thermodynamic pressure P , as τij = − P + 2 µ−λ 3 · U δij + µ ∂Ui ∂Uj + ∂xj ∂xi (8.102)

The significance of the difference between the thermodynamic pressure and the mechanical pressure associated with fluid dilation which connected by · U . The physical meaning of · U represents the relative volume rate of change. For simple gas (dilute monatomic gases) it can be shown that λ vanishes. In material such as water, λ is large (3 times µ) but the net effect is small because in that cases · U −→ 0. For complex liquids this coefficient, λ, can be over 100 times larger than µ. Clearly for incompressible flow, this coefficient or the whole effect is vanished19 . In most cases, the total effect of the dilation on the flow is very small. Only in micro fluids and small and molecular scale such as in shock waves this effect has some significance. In fact this effect is so insignificant that there is difficulty in to construct experiments so this effect can be measured. Thus, neglecting this effect results in τij = −P δij + µ ∂Ui ∂Uj + ∂xj ∂xi (8.103)

To explain equation (8.103), it can be written for spesific coordinates. For example, for the τxx it can be written that τxx = −P + 2 and the y coordinate the equation is τyy = −P + 2 however the mix stress, τxy , is τxy = τyx = ∂Uy ∂Ux + ∂x ∂y

8.6 Boundary Conditions and Driving Forces
8.6.1 Boundary Conditions Categories
The governing equations that were developed earlier requires some boundary conditions and initial conditions. These conditions described physical situations that are believed or should exist or approximated. These conditions can be categorized by the velocity, pressure, or in more general terms as the shear stress conditions (mostly at the interface). For this discussion, the shear tensor will be separated into two categories, pressure (at the interface direction) and shear stress (perpendicular to the area). A common velocity condition is that the liquid has the same value as the solid interface velocity. In the literature, this condition is referred as the “no slip” condition. The solid surface is rough thus the liquid participles (or molecules) are slowed to be at the solid surface velocity. This boundary condition was experimentally observed under many conditions yet it is not universal true. The slip condition (as oppose to “no slip” condition) exist in situations where the scale is very small and the velocity is relatively very small. The slip condition is dealing with a difference in the velocity between the solid (or other material) and the fluid media. The difference between the small scale and the large scale is that the slip can be neglected in the large scale while the slip cannot be neglected in the small scale. In another view, the difference in the velocities vanishes as the scale increases. Another condition which affects whether the slip condition ext n ist is how rapidly of the velocity change. The slip condition canflow not be ignored in some regions, when the flow is with a strong direction velocity fluctuations. Mathematically the “no slip” condition is x written as

f (x)


U t · (U f luid − U boundary ) = 0 b Fig. -8.13. 1–Dimensional free surface describing n and t (8.115) b. where n is referred to the area direction (perpendicular to the area see Figure 8.13). While this condition (8.115) is given in a vector form, it is more common to write this condition as a given velocity at a certain point such as U( ) = U (8.116)

Note, the “no slip” condition is applicable to the ideal fluid (“inviscid flows”) because this kind of flow normally deals with large scales. The ”slip” condition is written in similar fashion to equation (8.115) as U t · (U f luid − U boundary ) = f (Q, scale, etc) (8.117)



As oppose to a given velocity at particular point, a requirement on the acceleration (velocity) can be given in unknown position. The condition (8.115) can be mathematically represented in another way for free surface conditions. To make sure that all the material is accounted for in the control volume (does not cross the free surface), the relative perpendicular velocity at the interface must be zero. The location of the r (free) moving boundary can be given as f (r , t) = 0 as the equation which describes the bounding surface. The perpendicular relative velocity at the surface must be zero and therefore Df =0 Dt r on the surface f (r , t) = 0 (8.118)

This condition is called the kinematic boundary condition. For example, the free surface in the two dimensional case is represented as f (t, x, y). The condition becomes as 0= ∂f ∂f ∂f + Ux + Uy ∂t ∂x ∂y (8.119)

The solution of this condition, sometime, is extremely hard to handle because the location isn’t given but the derivative given on unknown location. In this book, this condition will not be discussed (at least not plane to be written). The free surface is a special case of moving surfaces where the surface between two distinct fluids. In reality the interface between these two fluids is not a sharp transition but only approximation (see for the surface theory). There are situations where the transition should be analyzed as a continuous transition between two phases. In other cases, the transition is idealized an almost jump (a few molecules thickness). Furthermore, there are situations where the fluid (above one of the sides) should be considered as weightless material. In these cases the assumptions are that the transition occurs in a sharp line, and the density has a jump while the shear stress are continuous (in some cases continuously approach zero value). While a jump in density does not break any physical laws (at least those present in the solution), the jump in a shear stress (without a jump in density) does break a physical law. A jump in the shear stress creates infinite force on the adjoin thin layer. Off course, this condition cannot be tolerated since infinite velocity (acceleration) is impossible. The jump in shear stress can appear when the density has a jump in density. The jump in the density (between the two fluids) creates a surface tension which offset the jump in the shear stress. This condition is expressed mathematically by equating the shear stress difference to the forces results due to the surface tension. The shear stress difference is ∆τ (n) = 0 = ∆τ (n) upper − ∆τ (n) lower
surface surface


where the index (n) indicate that shear stress are normal (in the surface area). If the surface is straight there is no jump in the shear stress. The condition with curved surface are out the scope of this book yet mathematically the condition is given as

t · τ (t) = −t ·

where n is the unit normal and t is a unit tangent to the surface (notice that direction pointed out of the “center” see Figure 8.13) and R1 and R2 are principal radii. One of results of the free surface condition (or in general, the moving surface condition) is that integration constant is unknown). In same instances, this constant is determined from the volume conservation. In index notation equation (8.121) is written20 as τij nj + σ ni

the unit vector is given as two vectors in x and y and the radius is given by equation (1.57). The equation is given by ∂f ∂f + Ux = Uy ∂t ∂x The Pressure Condition The second condition that commonality prescribed at the interface is the static pressure at a specific location. The static pressure is measured perpendicular to the flow direction. The last condition is similar to the pressure condition of prescribed shear stress or a relationship to it. In this category include the boundary conditions with issues of surface tension which were discussed earlier. It can be noticed that the boundary conditions that involve the surface tension are of the kind where the condition is given on boundary but no at a specific location. Gravity as Driving Force
20 There is no additional benefit in this writing, it just for completeness and can be ignored for most purposes. 21 A one example of a reference not in particularly important or significant just a random example.

The body forces, in general and gravity in a particular, are the condition that given on the flow beside the velocity, shear stress (including the surface tension) and the pressure. The gravity is a common body force which is considered in many fluid mechanics problems. The gravity can be considered as a constant force in most cases (see for dimensional analysis for the reasons).

Shear Stress and Surface Tension as Driving Force If the fluid was solid material, pulling the side will pull all the material. In fluid (mostly liquid) shear stress pulling side (surface) will have limited effect and yet sometime is significant and more rarely dominate. Consider, for example, the case shown in Figure 8.14. The shear stress carry the material as if part of the material was a solid material. For example, in the kerosene lamp the burning occurs at the surface of the lamp top and the liquid Fig. -8.14. Kerosene lamp. is at the bottom. The liquid does not move up due the gravity (actually it is against the gravity) but because the surface tension. The physical conditions in Figure 8.14 are used to idealize the flow around an inner rode to understand how to apply the surface tension to the boundary conditions. The fluid surrounds the rode temperature and flows upwards. In that case, the velocity at the gradent surface of the inner rode is zero. The velocity at U(ri) = 0 mix zone the outer surface is unknown. The boundary condition at outer surface given by a jump of the shear ∂U ∂σ constant = µ stress. The outer diameter is depends on the surT ∂r ∂h face tension (the larger surface tension the smaller the liquid diameter). The surface tension is a function of the temperature therefore the gradient in Fig. -8.15. Schematic of kerosene surface tension is result of temperature gradient. lamp. In this book, this effect is not discussed. However, somewhere downstream the temperature gradient is insignificant. Even in that case, the surface tension gradient remains. It can be noticed that, under the assumption presented here, there are two principal radii of the flow. One radius toward the center of the rode while the other radius is infinite (approximatly). In that case, the contribution due to the curvature is zero in the direction of the flow (see Figure 8.15). The only (almost) propelling source of the ∂σ flow is the surface gradient ( ∂n ).

The flow surface is curved and thus pressure is not equal on both sides of the interface.7.1 Interfacial Instability In Example 8. Example 8. This explanation bothered this author.

Assume that radios of the liquid and solid core are given and the flow is at steady state. The second domain (the gas phase) provides another equation with two constants but again three boundary conditions need to satisfied. The phenomenon is explained by the fact that there is somewhere instability which is transferred into the flow.7.VIII.

This book attempts to describe these issues as a fundamentals of physical aspects and less as a literature review. As result. It is recognized that multiphase flow is still evolving. Here. In fact. his analysis is in the twilight zone not in the real world. In the past.there are two possibilities (1) the fluids/materials are flowing in well homogeneous mixed (where the main problem 1 An example.

Initially the models were using simple assumptions. who did not consider the flow as two–phase flow and ignoring the air.1 Introduction Traditionally. Calculations of many kinds of flow deals with more than one phase or material flow1 . there was a Ph. For many engineers. books on multiphase flow were written more as a literature review or heavy on the mathematics. in many books the representations is by writing the whole set governing equations. the nature of multiphase flow requires solving many equations.D.2 History The study of multi–phase flow started for practical purposes after World War II. only the trends and simple calculations are described. it is believed that the interactions/calculations requires a full year class and hence.CHAPTER 9 Multi–Phase Flow 9. Additionally. Thus. This chapter provides information that is more or less in consensus2 . working for the government who analyzed filing cavity with liquid metal (aluminum). there is not a consensus to the exact map of many flow regimes. For simple models. is required for many engineering problems. The author believes that the trends and effects of multiphase flow could and should be introduced and considered by engineers. this class will be the only opportunity to be exposed to this topic. the topic of multi–phase flow is ignored in an introductory class on fluid mechanics. 9.

MULTI–PHASE FLOW to find the viscosity). researchers started to look for different flow regimes and provided different models. For example. When it became apparent that specific models were needed for different situations. a description of what to expect in this chapter is provided. It turned out this idea provides a good crude results in some cases. Researchers that followed Lockhart and Martinelli looked for a different map for different combination of phases. this chapter will explain the core concepts of the multiphase flow and their relationship.274 CHAPTER 9. . partial discussion on speed of sound of different regimes. Taitle and Duckler suggested a map based on five non-dimensional groups which are considered as the most useful today. However. this chapter will not provide a discussion of transient problems. and calculation of pressure drop of simple homogeneous model. If the pressure loss was linear then the total loss will be the summation of the two pressure losses (of the lighter liquid (gas) and the heavy liquid). multi–phase flow parameters definitions. flow parameters effects on the flow regimes. This was suggested by Lockhart and Martinelli who use a model where the flow of the two fluids are independent of each other. Hence. Taitle–Duckler’s map is not applicable for microgravity. and importance to real world. double choking phenomenon (hopefully). They postulate that there is a relationship between the pressure loss of a single phase and combine phases pressure loss as a function of the pressure loss of the other phase. Also the researchers looked at the situation when the different regimes are applicable. 9. It is an attempt to explain and convince all the readers that the multi–phase flow must be included in introductory class on fluid mechanics3 . This chapter will provide: a category of combination of phases. This chapter will introduce these concepts so that the engineer not only be able to understand a conversation on multi-phase but also. will know and understand the trends. The flow patterns or regimes were not considered.3 What to Expect From This Chapter As oppose to the tradition of the other chapters in this book and all other Potto project books. Which leads to the concept of flow regime maps. Under this assumption the total is not linear and experimental correlation was made. Taitle and Duckler’s map is not universal and it is only applied to certain liquid–gas conditions. the concept of flow regimes.

The discussion in the previous chapters is only as approximation when multiphase can be “reduced” into a single phase flow. or a large acceleration. this assumption will not be appropriate when the air is stratified because of large body forces. -9.” 4 Different concentration of oxygen as a function of the height.

While the difference of the concentration between the top to button is insignificant. . there are situations when air flow has to be considered as multiphase flow and this effect has to be taken into account. This fact is due to the shear number of the downloaded Potto books. It also provides an opportunity to bring the latest advances in the fields since this author does not need to “sell” the book to a publisher or convince a “committee. nonetheless it exists. 9.

although important. the flow of oil and water in one pipe is a multiphase flow. In a four (4) miles long train.276 CHAPTER 9. March 29. in nature can be blood flow. it is more common to categorize the flow by the distinct phases that flow in the tube. In almost all situations. Many industries are involved with this flow category such as dust collection. Gas–solid can be found in sand storms. Flow of air is actually the flow of several light liquids (gases). a 10% change of the speed of sound due to dust particles in air could reduce the stopping time by 2 seconds (50 meter difference in stopping) and can cause an accident. for an example. One way to categorize the multiphase is by the materials flows. For example. liquid–gas and solid–liquid–gas flow. Since there are three phases. plasma and river flow with live creatures (small organisms to large fish) flow of ice berg. The water flow is the source of the friction. the density is a strong function of the temperature and pressure. For example. This notion eliminates many other flow categories that can and should be included in multiphase flow. There are many more categories. solid propellant rocket. for example. spray casting. the cleanness of air can reduce the speed of sound. The liquid–solid. 360070 issued to George Westinghouse. The “average” viscosity is meaningless since in many cases the water follows around the oil. The multiphase can be found in nature.

Jr. and avalanches. there are situations where cleanness of the air can affect the flow. they can be solid–liquid.5 Classification of Liquid-Liquid Flow Regimes The general discussion on liquid–liquid will be provided and the gas–liquid flow will be discussed as a special case. is only an extreme case of liquid-gas flow and is a sub category of the multiphase flow. mud flow etc. rain. the breaks in long trains were activated by reduction of the compressed line (a patent no.

This flow also appears in any industrial process that are involved in solidification (for example die casting) and in moving solid particles. hydraulic with two or more kind of liquids. fluidized bed. For the gas. In the past. solid–gas. Many natural phenomenon are multiphase flow. the cleanness of the air or the fact that air is a mixture is ignored. The same can be said for gas–gas flow. Open Channel flow is. Liquid–liquid flow is probably the most common flow in the nature. sand and grain (which are “solids”) flow with rocks and is referred to solid–solid flow.. This category should include any distinction of phase/material. there are two possibilities for two different materials to flow (it is also correct for solid–liquid and any other combination).

the flow of gas–liquid can have several flow regimes in one situation while the flow of liquid–liquid will (probably) have only one flow regime.1. the co-current is the more common. Open channel flow appears in many nature (river) as well in industrial process such as the die casting process where liquid metal is injected into a cylinder (tube) shape. The channel flow will be discussed in a greater detail in Open Channel Flow chapter.2. Yet. horizontal. This definition (open channel flow) continues for small amount of lighter liquid as long as the heavier flow can be calculated as open channel flow (ignoring the lighter liquid). When the flow rate of the lighter liquid is almost zero. The main difference between the liquid–liquid flow to gas-liquid flow is that gas density is extremely lighter than the liquid density. This kind of flow regime is referred to as horizontal flow. The flow regimes are referred to the arrangement of the fluids. In general. two liquids can have three main categories: vertical. 9. the counter–current flow must have special configurations of long length of flow. The vertical configuration has two cases. dispersed Heavy Liquid bubble flow. Additionally. Thus.5. The flow in inclined angle (that not covered by the word “near”) exhibits flow regimes not much different from the other two. . and what ever between them. up or down. it is referred as counter–current.2. the flow is referred to as open channel flow. 5 With the exception of the extremely smaller diameter where Rayleigh–Taylor instability is an important issue. the limits between the flow regimes are considerably different. the counter–current flow has a limited length window of possibility in a vertical flow in conduits with the exception of magnetohydrodynamics. water and air flow as oppose to water and oil flow.1 Horizontal Flow The typical regimes for horizontal flow are stratified flow (open channel flow. -9. the heavy liquid flows on the Fig. 9.1 Co–Current Flow In Co–Current flow.

The geometries (even the boundaries) of open channel flow are very diverse. and annular flow. This issue of incline flow will not be covered in this chapter. The other characteristic that is different between the gas flow and the liquid flow is the variation of the density. Stratified flow in horizontal tubes when bottom and lighter liquid flows on the the liquids flow is very slow.9. CLASSIFICATION OF LIQUID-LIQUID FLOW REGIMES 277 materials flow in the opposite direction. a reduction of the pressure by half will double the gas volumetric flow rate while the change in the liquid is negligible. There is no exact meaning to the word “near vertical” or “near horizontal” and there is no consensus on the limiting angles (not to mention to have limits as a function with any parameter that determine the limiting angle). For example.5. plug flow. It is common to differentiate between the vertical (and near vertical) and horizontal (and near horizontal).5. For example.

This friction is one of the cause for the instability which manifested itself as waves and changing the surface from straight line to a different configuration (see Figure 9. and other physical properties of the fluids but also on the material of the conduit. MULTI–PHASE FLOW As the lighter liquid (or the gas phase) flow rate increases (superficial velocity). At some point. The wave shape is created to keep the gas and the liquid velocity equal and at the same time to have shear stress to be balance by surface tension. -9. -9. In fact. The configuration of the cross section not only depend on the surface tension. Choking occurs in compressible Light Liquid flow when the flow rate is above a certain point. Plug flow is characterized by regions of lighter liquid filled with drops of the heavier liquid with Plug (or Slug) of the heavier liquid (with bubble of the lighter liquid). choking occurs relatively Fig. liquid level is higher. For liquid which the density is a strong and primary function of the pressure. The pressure drop of this kind of regime is significantly larger than the stratified flow. Fig. the friction between the phases increase. Plug flow in horizontal tubes when the closer/sooner. Thus. the flow pattern is referred to as slug flow or plug flow.3. The superficial velocity is referred to as the velocity that any phase will have if the other phase was not exist. The “average” viscosity depends on the flow and thus making it as insignificant way to do the calculations.3). All liquids are compressible Heavy Liquid to some degree. Light Liquid Light Liquid Some referred to this regime as wavy stratified flow Heavy Liquid Heavy Liquid but this definition is not accepted by all as a category by itself. the possibility to go through slug flow regime depends on if there is enough liquid flow rate. as a stratified flow will turned into a slug flow or stratified wavy7 flow after a certain distance depends on the heavy flow rate (if 6 The 7 Well. the flow that starts liquids flow is faster. At this stage. This kind of flow regime is referred to as annular flow. for the wave to reach the conduit crown is smaller. Further increase of the lighter liquid flow rate move the flow regime into annular flow. the heavier liquid wave reaches to the crown of the pipe. The slug flow cannot be assumed to be as homogeneous flow nor it can exhibit some average viscosity. As the lighter liquid velocity increases two things can happen (1) wave size increase and (2) the shape of cross section continue to deform. These plugs are separated by large “chunks” that almost fill the entire tube. Kind of Stratified flow in There are two paths that can occur on the heavier horizontal tubes. thus it is arbitrary definition.4. when the lighter liquid flow increases. . all the two phase flow are categorized by wavy flow which will proven later.4). If the heavier liquid flow rate is larger6 than the distance. all the flow is wavy. liquid flow rate. Thus. then the wave cannot reach to the crown and the shape is deformed to the point that all the heavier liquid is around the periphery.278 CHAPTER 9. The plugs are flowing in a succession (see Figure 9. If the heavier flow rate is small.

The angle decreases with the length of the pipe. Qualitatively. liquid–liquid flow has a maximum combined of the flow rate (both phases).2 Vertical Flow The vertical flow has two possibilities.5. Hence. etc. with the gravity or against it. the return path is not move the exact same way. As in many fluid mechanics and magnetic fields. There is a difference between flowing with the gravity and flowing against the gravity. flow that had slug flow in its path can be returned as stratified wavy flow. weak to strong surface tension effects (air/water in “normal” gravity). However. the flow become annular or the flow will choke. The reverse way is referred to the process where the starting point is high flow rate and the flow rate is decreasing. After a certain distance. This maximum is known as double choking phenomenon. The buoyancy . other parameters can affect the “near. the “near” angle depends on the length of the pipe. -9. The results of the above discussion are depicted in Figure 9. the vertical flow against the gravity is more common used. In engineering application. There is even a possibility to return on different flow regime. 9. This phenomenon is refer to as hysteresis. The choking can occur before the annular flow regime is obtained depending on the velocity and compressibility of the lighter liquid. this map is only characteristics of the “normal” conditions.5.9. Besides the length. e. in normal gravitation. As many things in multiphase.1.5. For example.5. there is no consensus how far is the “near” means.” Dispersed Bubble Liquid Superficial Velocity Elongated Bubble Slug Flow Annular Flow Stratified Flow Wavy Stratified Open Channel Flow Gas Superficial Velocity Fig. as in compressible flow.

they create a large bubble and the flow is referred to as slug flow or plug flow (see Figure 9. After additional increase of “super slug” . The main reason that causes the difference is that the heavier liquid is more dominated by gravity (body forces) while the lighter liquid is dominated by the pressure driving forces. MULTI–PHASE FLOW Bubble Flow Slug or Plug Flow Churn Flow Annular Flow Dispersed Flow Fig. the flow regime is referred as elongated bubble flow. all these “elongated slug” unite to become an annular flow. The heavier liquid has to occupy almost the entire cross section before it can flow because of the gravity forces. the flow starts as a bubble flow. Thus.6. the different mechanism in creating the plug flow in horizontal flow compared to the vertical flow. Flow Against Gravity For vertical flow against gravity. For the flow against gravity. Thus. Again. see Figure 9. there are different flow regimes for these two situations. the lighter liquid has a buoyancy that acts as an “extra force” to move it faster and this effect is opposite for the heavier liquid. -9. is acting in two different directions for these two flow regimes.280 CHAPTER 9.6. The flow is less stable as more turbulent flow and several “super slug” or churn flow appears in more chaotic way. Any further increase transforms the outer liquid layer into bubbles in the inner liquid. Further increase of lighter liquid flow rate will increase the slug size as more bubbles collide to create “super slug”. Notice. The increase of the lighter liquid flow rate will increase the number of bubbles until some bubbles start to collide. Gas and liquid in Flow in verstical tube against the gravity. When many bubbles collide. . the flow cannot start as a stratified flow. The choking can occur at any point depends on the fluids and temperature and pressure. it can be noted the difference in the mechanism that create annular flow for vertical and horizontal flow. The opposite is for the flow with gravity.6). Flow of near vertical against the gravity in two–phase does not deviate from vertical.

the points where these transitions occur are different from the horizontal flow. it must be possible to construct a model that connects this configuration with the stratified flow where the transitions will be dependent on the angle of inclinations. both will be united in this discussion. The ordinate is a combination of flow rate ratio and density ratio.7. A good example for this flow regime is a water fall.9. After the flow has settled. The transitions between the flow regimes is similar to stratified flow. The abscissa is a function of combination of Froude . Pulsing For example. the regime liquid fills the entire void and the gas is in small bubble and this flow referred to as bubbly flow. The common map is based on dimensionless parameters. The initial part for this flow is more significant. In cases where the surface tension is very important.1. there is pulse flow in which liquid is moving in frequent pulses. Since the heavy liquid can be supplied from the “wrong” point/side. respectively. While this author is not aware of an actual model. In the literature. The interaction between the phases is minimal and can be Fig. all the gas phase change into tiny drops of liquid and this kind of regime referred to as mist flow. At a higher rate of liquid flow and a low flow rate of gas. As the gas flow increases. Flow With The Gravity As opposed to the flow against gravity. In the medium range of the flow rate of gas and liquid. this flow can starts with stratified flow. The liquid–liquid (also .Reynolds. However. MULTI–PHASE FLOW VARIABLES DEFINITIONS 9. the flow continues in a stratified configuration. for the convenience of the terms “gas and liquid” will be used to signify the lighter and heavier liquid.

3) It has to be emphasized that this mass velocity is the actual velocity.7) . over its cross section.2) Where A is the entire area of the tube. The gas mass velocity is GG = mG ˙ A (9. The liquid mass velocity is GL = The mass flow of the tube is then G= m ˙ A (9.1) It is common to define the mass velocity instead of the regular velocity because the “regular” velocity changes along the length of the pipe.6) GG = UsG ρG (9. It has to be noted that this mass velocity does not exist in reality.6. MULTI–PHASE FLOW gas–liquid) flow is an extremely complex three–dimensional transient problem since the flow conditions in a pipe may vary along its length. The volumetric flow rate is not constant (since the density is not constant) along the flow rate and it is defined as QG = and for the liquid QL = GL ρL (9. the only serious missing point in this discussion is the change of the flow along the distance of the tube. some variables are defined so that the flow can be described as a one-dimensional flow. 9.282 CHAPTER 9. and with time. Perhaps. The total volumetric volume vary along the tube length and is Q = QL + QG (9. the volumetric flow rate can be considered as constant. This method is the most common and important to analyze two-phase flow pressure drop and other parameters. To simplify the descriptions of the problem and yet to retain the important features of the flow.5) For liquid with very high bulk modulus (almost constant density).4) mL ˙ A (9.1 Multi–Phase Averaged Variables Definitions The total mass flow rate through the tube is the sum of the mass flow rates of the two phases m = mG + mL ˙ ˙ ˙ (9.

the value of (1 − X) is referred to as the “wetness fraction.9) This fraction is vary along tube length since the gas density is not constant along the tube length. a superficial velocity is commonly defined in which if only one phase is using the entire tube.6. The liquid fraction or liquid holdup is LH = 1 − α = AL A (9.8) In a similar fashion.10) It must be noted that Liquid holdup.12) GG Xm ˙ = = QG ρG ρG A (9. Thus. it can be noted that the slip velocity is not constant along the tube.13) Where Um is the averaged velocity. The ratio of the gas flow cross sectional area to the total cross sectional area is referred as the void fraction and defined as α= AG A (9.11) Since UsL = QL and similarly for the gas then Um = UsG + UsL (9. Also. . The average superficial velocity of the gas and liquid are different.14) Slip ratio is usually greater than unity. MULTI–PHASE FLOW VARIABLES DEFINITIONS 283 Ratio of the gas flow rate to the total flow rate is called the ’quality’ or the “dryness fraction” and is given by X= GG mG ˙ = m ˙ G (9.” The last two factions remain constant along the tube length as long the gas and liquid masses remain constant. Thus. the ratio of these velocities is referred to as the slip velocity and is defined as the following SLP = UG UL (9. The actual velocities depend on the other phase since the actual cross section the phase flows is dependent on the other phase. LH is not constant for the same reasons the void fraction is not constant.9. It can be noticed that Um is not constant along the tube. The gas superficial velocity is therefore defined as UsG = The liquid superficial velocity is UsL = GL (1 − X) m ˙ = = QL ρL ρL A (9.

the mixture density is defined as ρm = α ρG + (1 − α) ρL (9.20) becomes X= ρG α ρL (1 − α) + ρG α (9. thus equation (9.

MULTI–PHASE FLOW For the same velocity of phases (SLP = 1). The density of any material is defined as ρ = m/V and thus. for the flowing material it is ρ= m ˙ Q (9.1) and (9.15) This density represents the density taken at the “frozen” cross section (assume the volume is the cross section times infinitesimal thickness of dx).17) Equation (9.17) can be simplified by canceling the m and noticing the (1−X)+X = 1 ˙ to become + (1−X) ρL The average specific volume of the flow is then X ρG ρaverage = 1 (9.19) The relationship between X and α is AG X= mG ˙ ρG UG A α ρG UG α = = (9.16) results in mG ˙ mL ˙ ρaverage = ˙ X m + (1 − X) m ˙ ˙ X m + (1 − X) m ˙ = ˙ X m (1 − X) m ˙ QG + QL + ρG ρL QG QL (9.21) .7) into equation (9.

There is not available experimental data for the relationship of the averaged velocity of the two (or more) phases and wall shear stress.1. For laminar flow C = 16 and n = 1. acceleration must occur. For turbulent flow C = 0. for small distances (dx) and some situations. These losses are non-linear and depend on each other.

Lockhart and Martinelli built model based on the assumption that the separated pressure loss are independent from each other.3 Gravity Pressure Loss CHAPTER 9.4 Total Pressure Loss The total pressure between two points.

The first set is similar because the solid particles are moving faster than the liquid velocity and vice versa for the second set (slower than the liquid).

Additional increase of the fluid velocity will move all the particles and this Fig. Thus. It has to remember that not all the particle are uniform in size or shape. For small gas/liquid velocity. In the literature there are many functions for various conditions. For particles. The simplest assumption that the change of the cross section of the fluid create a parameter that multiply the single particle as CD ∞ |α = CD ∞ f (α) (9. Further increase of the fluid flow increases the empty spots to the whole flow. For the case of gas. particles flow the particles are what some call fixed fluidized bed. the particle will sink into the liquid. the minimum velocity is a range of velocity rather than a sharp transition point. the Reynolds number is in the second range9 . When the velocity of liquid is higher than the minimum velocity many particles will be floating. Consequently. further increase will create a slug flow. In very large range (especially for gas) the choking might be approached. partialy Fully the discussion will be focus on the fluid solid fluidized velocity. Increasing the fluid velocity beyond a minimum will move the parti∆Ptube cles and it is referred to as mix fluidized bed. For the first region. In that case. Yet. US|avarge . then the actual velocity that every particle experience depends on the void fraction. When the velocity is lower. the only velocity that can be applied is Trasiton the fluid velocity. Thus. the particle will drift with the liquid.8.53) When the subscript α is indicating the void. As the solid particles are not pushed by a pump but moved by the forces the fluid applies to them. in many cases the middle region is applicable.9. the case of liquid. So far the discussion was about single particle. the function f (α) is not a linear function. This regimes is referred to as Pneumatic conveying (see Figure 9. SOLID–LIQUID FLOW 291 In most cases of solid-liquid system. Additional increase in the fluid velocity causes large turbulence and the ordinary domes are replaced by churn type flow or large bubbles that are almost empty of the solid particles. This slug flow is when slug shape (domes) are almost empty of the solid particle. Thus. When there are more than one particle in the cross section. the sparse solid particles are dispersed all over.9).8. the velocity is small to lift the particle unless the density difference is very small (that very small force can lift the particles). additional increase create “tunnels” of empty almost from solid particles. If the velocity is larger. the solid particles Packed can be supplied at different rate. Minimum velocity is the velocity when the particle is “floating”. 9 It be wonderful if flow was in the last range? The critical velocity could be found immediately. The terminal velocity that left the solid is referred to as fully fluidized bed. -9.

2 Solid With Lighter Density ρS < ρ and With Gravity This situation is minimal and very few cases exist.292 CHAPTER 9. The buoyancy is accelerating the particle . the velocity √ of gas is limited when reaching the Mach somewhere between 1/ k and 1 since the gas will be choked (neglecting the double choking phenomenon). The flow can have slug flow but more likely will be in fast Fluidization regime. the fluid density can be higher than the solid (especially with micro gravity). The flow is fully fluidized for any liquid flow rate. Furthermore. One of the main difference between the liquid and gas flow in this category is the speed of sound. the length of conduit is very limited. 9.8. -9. However. MULTI–PHASE FLOW Fixed Bed Mixed Bed Slug or Plug Flow Turbulent Regimes Fast Fluidization Pneumatic Conveying Fig.9. There was very little investigations and known about the solid–liquid flowing down (with the gravity). there is very little knowledge about the solid–liquid when the solid density is smaller than the liquid density. Hence. this limitation does not (effectively) exist for most cases of solid–liquid flow. Nevertheless. There is no known flow map for this kind of flow that this author is aware of. The forces that act on the spherical particle are the buoyancy force and drag force. The issue of minimum terminal velocity is not exist and therefor there is no fixed or mixed fluidized bed. The speed of sound of the liquid does not change much. the speed of sound is reduced dramatically with increase of the solid particles concentration (further reading Fundamentals of Compressible Flow” chapter on Fanno Flow by this author is recommended). Hence. In the gas phase. it must be pointed out that even in solid–gas. several conclusions and/or expectations can be drawn. Thus. The flow patterns in solid-liquid flow.

In most cases. Hence. for large velocity of the fluid it can be observed that UL /US → 1. Counter–flow in vertical tubes map. it can observed that increase of the liquid velocity will increase the solid particle velocity at the same amount. the possibility to have counter–current flow is limited to having short length of tubes. But in most cases. the liquid will flow in pulse regime. Flow The inertia components of the flow. when cavity is filled or emptied with a liquid. this author have not seen any evidence that show the annular flow does not appear in solid–liquid flow. However. In only certain configurations of the infinite long pipes the counter–current flow can exist. However.9 Counter–Current Flow This discussion will be only on liquid–liquid systems (which also includes liquid-gas systems). Initially the solid particles will be carried by the liquid to the top. opening a can of milk or juice. The affective body force “seems” by the particles can be in some cases larger than the gravity. The flow regimes will be similar but the transition will be in different points. for example. 9. Most people know that two holes are needed to empty the can easily and continuously. The counter-current flow occurs. When the liquid velocity increase and became turbulent. Otherwise. In short tube. Typically if only one hole is opened on the top of the can. The pressure difference in the interface must Fig.54) 6 8 From equation 9. the counter–current flow can have opposite pressure gradient for short conduit. for a small fluid velocity the velocity ratio is very large. For example. The two phase regimes “occurs” mainly in entrance to the cavity. Liquid Body Foreces . Annular Extented Flow In that case. for Pulse Flow Inpossible long tubes.10. The solid–liquid horizontal flow has some similarity to horizontal gas–liquid flow. This kind of flow is probably the most common to be realized by the masses. some of the particles enter into the liquid core. Further increase of the liquid velocity appear as somewhat similar to slug flow. the flow will be in a pulse regime. the or Dripping Flow pressure difference in one phase can be f (D/L. cannot compensate for the Flow pressure gradient.

Then. the heavy liquid is leaving the can. Even though the solid–gas ratio is smaller. The air is “attempting” to enter the cavity to fill the vacuum created thus forcing pulse flow. liquid flows through one hole and the air through the second hole and the flow will be continuous. If there are two holes. There are three flow regimes10 that have been observed. There must be other flow regimes that were not observed or defined. There are more things to be examined and to be studied. . It also can be noticed that if there is one hole (orifice) and a long and narrow tube. Counter–current flow in a can (the left figure) has only one hole thus pulse flow and a flow with two holes (right picture). For example. elongated pulse flow was observed but measured. -9.

This field hasn’t been well explored. it can be noticed that the solid–gas is faster than the liquid–gas flow. The first flow pattern is pulse flow regime. In this flow regime. This is opposed to counter–current solid–gas flow when almost no pulse was observed.11. -9. Then the pressure in the can is reduced compared to the outside and some lighter liquid (gas)entered into the can.294 CHAPTER 9. Fig.12.

In very small Steam Flow diameters of tubes the counter–current flow is not possible because of the surface tension (see section 4.1 Horizontal Counter–Current Flow Up to this point. At this point. length with some combinations of the physical properties (surface tension etc) determines the point where the counter flow can start. Horizontal flow is different from vertical flow from the stability issues. Extended open channel flow retains the characteristic of open channel that the lighter liquid (almost) does not effect the heavier liquid flow. This process continue until almost the liquid is evacuated (some liquid stay due the surface tension). The cycle duration can be replaced by frequency. the discussion was focused on the vertical tubes.” In the vertical co–current flow there are two possibilities. . Example of such flow in the nature is water falls in which water flows down and air (wind) flows up.9. As opposed to the co–current flow. Annular Flow in Counter–current flow The other flow regime is annular flow in which the heavier phase is on the periphery of Water the conduit (In the literature. flow with gravity or against it.7). Additional increase of the diameter will change the flow regime into extended open channel flow. no counter–current flow is possible. However. if the can was on the sun (ignoring the heat transfer issue).7) page 137) it can be considered stable for small diameters. Flood in vertical pipe. Further increase of the body force will move the flow to be in the extended “open channel flow.

In many situations. there are someFlow one who claims that heavy liquid will be inside). The driving force is the second parameter which effects the flow existence. but somehow it contradicts with the experimental evidence. Thus it should be considered as non existent flow. The duration the cycle depends on several factors. This situation is unstable for large diameter but as in static (see section (4. the counter–current flow has no possibility for these two cases. In horizontal tubes.13. Consider the can in zero gravity field. The heavy liquid will flow with the body forces (gravity).9. -9. When the driving (body) force is very small. there is an additional flow regime which is stratified . one or more of the assumptions that the analysis based is erroneous). A heavier liquid layer can flow above a lighter liquid. no counter–current flow possible. the pulsing flow will start and larger diameter will increase the flow and turn the flow into annular flow.

3 Partial Differential Equations Partial Differential Equations (PDE) are differential equations which include function includes the partial derivatives of two or more variables.112) is similar to the equations for a conic geometry: axx x2 + axy x y + ayy y 2 + · · · = 0 (A. when the discriminant is zero the equation are called parabolic.3. . Partial differential equations are categorized by the order of highest derivative. Many situations in fluid mechanics can be described by PDE equations. Generally.111) Where subscripts refers to derivative based on it.) = 0 (A. the same can be done for a second-order PDE.8 A general Form of the Homogeneous Equation dn u dn−1 u du + k1 tn−1 n−1 + · · · + kn−1 t + kn u = a x dtn dt dt The homogeneous equation can be generalized to k0 tn (A. The solution of elliptic equations depends on the boundary conditions The solution of parabolic equations depends on the boundary conditions but as well on the initial conditions.A.110) To be continue A. The disxy criminant can be function of the x and y and thus can change sign and thus the characteristic of the equation. Example of such equation is F (ut . The physical meaning of the these definition is that these equations have different characterizations. this characterization is done for for second order.112) The coefficients axx . Normally. As one might expect PDE are harder to solve. When the discriminant . The meaning for initial conditions is that of solution depends on some early points of the flow (the solution).2.113) In the same manner that conic geometry equations are classified are based on the discriminant a2 − 4 axx ayy . The nature of the solution is based whether the equation is elliptic parabolic and hyperbolic. . Generally. One example of such equation is heat equation. PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS 331 A. However. sometimes similar definition can be applied for other order. ux = ∂u . For example. axy . . the PDE solution is done by transforming the PDE to one or more ODE. ux . Note that ∂x partial derivative also include mix of derivatives such as ux y. Equation (A. The hyperbolic equations are associated with method of characteristics because physical situations depends only on the initial conditions. ayy might depend upon ”x” and ”y”. The general second-order PDE in two independent variables has the form axx uxx + 2axy uxy + ayy uyy + · · · = 0 (A.

However.117) can exist is that these two term equal to a constant.115) The solution is assume to be u = Y (y) X(x) and substitute into the (A.114) The interpretation the equation characteristic is complicated.116) yields 1 ∂X(x) 1 ∂Y (y) + =0 X(x) ∂x Y (y) ∂y (A.1 First-order equations First order equation can be written as u = ax ∂u ∂u + ay + .115) results in Y (y) ∂X(x) ∂Y (y) + X(x) =0 ∂x ∂y (A. Is it possible that these terms not equal to a constant? The answer is no if the assumption of the solution is correct.119) and (A. An example of first order equation is ∂u ∂u + =0 ∂x ∂y (A.. the physics dictates this character and will be used in the book. the constant is denoted as λ and with this definition the PDE is reduced into two ODE.119) (A.116) Rearranging equation (A.
